It looks as if it is recognised to me, to make sure just run

Code: Select all
lsblk -l


with the device plugged in. Here is part of the output of mine:

Code: Select all
sdb    8:16   0 465.7G  0 disk
sdb1   8:17   0 415.6G  0 part
sdb3   8:19   0  50.2G  0 part
sr0   11:0    1  1024M  0 rom 


My external disk is seen as sdb with partitions sdb1 and sdb3. You should see something similar. To mount it I would just open my file manager and click mount, but then I have a decent file manager, most people don't, so the other way to mount the first partition would be

Code: Select all
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media


Then open the /media directory in a file manager (even Nautilus should be able to do that :lol: ).

It is not usually necessary to specify the filesystem type in the mount command any more, the command is good enough to guess most file systems these days, but if you have some exotic filesystem type on it you can specify it with:

Code: Select all
sudo mount -t minix /dev/sdb1 /media


If you happen to be strange enough to format your external devices with minix file systems. See

Code: Select all
man mount


For a list of all the filesystem types it understands.

detected capacity change from 40007630848 to 0


I have no idea, I have never seen an error like that in my life, it looks like others have though, this bug reports the same behaviour (although in this case the capacity change occurs after ejecting the disk):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1082920

So far it has no solution though :(

As it is still an open bug report so I suggest you add your experience to it, the more people it affects the more likely it is to be addressed.
